OK food and service

Food was OK at best. Good but not great service. Hostess was a bit more concerned with eating dinner than seating. White fish was good but

We booked a table for 7 people on Saturday evening. The service was average. The salads were big enough and I had salad which was delicious. There are 5 side dishes to choose from, all delicious!

If you like steaks this might be your place. I'm not too found of them but they were ok. I have had better. A full bodied wines that I had there were more lighter that I thought. Excellent service!

Plenty of room for two walki-in looking for business lunch. No hurry, so we choose for the ala carte instead of short lunch menu. This is clearly steak restaurant, so go for the meat dishes. Some red wines by the glass to choose for, maybe one or two could be from higher end.

Very plain portions, good beef and tasty sauces and one sidedish ( fries, greensalad etc.) 30 euros thank you. Waiters are kind of originals, typical in Tampere. The restaurant has no view at all, facade is to market square that is empty in the evenings.

I have visited The Grill many times. No fine dining but more relaxed place to spend evening or have lunch. Nice terrace in the summer. Food varies between average and really good. Service is always friendly and fast especially at lunchtime. Children are also welcome. Lunch (mo-fri 11-14) is always a great value for your money

Very good food, but maybe not the best for the price tag. If someone would suggest that let's go to eat at The Grill, I'd gladly go with them, but maybe otherwise not - it's that kind of good food. Good, but still not the best in town. A good choice for an evening out with a date. We had... More

It took 27 minutes to get water to the table. Some of the appetizers were sold out. Rest were bad. Horse filet was ok. The dessert I ordered was never delivered. We were a group of 12 on a Tuesday.
